The egg represents the marketable, finished produce from the laying flock. Poultry raisers should be familiar with eggs and do everything possible to maintain egg quality. Eggs are a valuable human food because they are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Like other important protein foods, eggs should be properly handled to protect their quality.
This campaign circular discusses what to look for in the size eggs and how to handle them before taking them market.
